My dad Lloyd Patrick was a member of Acorn 34 and was stationed at Clark Field. I do not know much about his service as he still will not talk much about it. At 97 years old i doubt that i will find out much more.

1st Lt. William G. Butler was one of the finest men I have ever had the priviledge to know. He was so proud to be a Marine and loved to talk about his "men".
He was my loving companion for 5 1/2 years until he passed away on June 29th, 2010.
He is so terribly missed by me and his family.

I am the daughter of Anthony "Tony" Dias he served as a top turret gunner for the VMB 611. Thank you for putting this website together. Does anyone know how many active former vmb 611 members are still alive. My Dad is turning 89 and still thinks he is 18, I know he would love to hear from his old buddies. Please feel free to contact me. Semper Fi. I loved going to many of the reunions and meeting these brave heros. I loved their stories and personalities. Tom Hamby, Timberman, Wildman, Lisa, Flynn, Rohback, some amazing men to name a few.

My uncle was Ivan Fritz. He was a navigator-bombadier with 611. It's great to read all the information on this sight and if anyone has any information on him, I would love to hear it! Thank you to all who served and the families of those that sacrificed so much!

Hello, my husband and I have enjoyed reading your post. He was on the Zoella Lykes with Acorn 34. He recalls many of these memories, including the only casuality and personal friend "Ted Geyer". We left Port Hueneme on September 26, 1944 and didn't arrive on Luzon until five months later. I would enjoy hearing from others who also served with Acron 34. I was friends with Edwin Moler from West VA and would like to know how he is doing?

My father was Carl Henry Woodle. I noticed a post by james mceachern that referenced his name, but I could not post a reply to it. Dad passed away in March 1999, but I have some photos and part of his military record. I would love to hear from anyone who knew him, or had additional photos.

My Grandfather (Alvin E. Lyttle) appears on the unit roster. I don't know that much about his service during the war but wondered if anyone had stories to share about him.

My uncle was Richard McKnight. He was killed the year before I was born.My grandparents,aunt, and mother grieved for him their entire lives. He was never forgotten by his family or friends. His empty coffin is buried in St.Louis,Jefferson Barracks Cemetery. This sight has taught me about my uncle's military life.Like everyone in this group,he was a brave man doing what needed to be done. Thank you for this wonderful web site.
